What Does the App Do?

In short, the FordPass app puts all the control of your huge vehicle into the palm of your hands. One of the most impressive features is the ability to remotely schedule your vehicle to start for any day at any time. If you know you're in your car by 8 a.m. every morning, you can schedule your vehicle to crank up at 7:50 a.m. to ensure a comfortable ride to work. In both hot and cold seasons, this is an advantage you'll appreciate. 

You can also lock or unlock your vehicle from virtually anywhere, which comes in handy when you arrive home or to work, and you can't quite remember whether or not you locked your car. With the FordPass app, the days of wondering where your car is in a crowded parking deck is also just a burden for non-Ford drivers to bear. The app lets you locate your vehicle at anytime and updates the location as soon as your vehicle turns off. 

Perhaps most importantly, the FordPass app is your insight to how your car is doing on the inside. The app keeps track of mileage, fuel level service history and more to help you never miss important tune ups. Keep in mind that the app can also contact roadside assistance in case of emergency. 

How Do You Use it?

First, it's important to note that only the following 2019 Ford vehicles have FordPass connectivity: the EcoSport, Edge, Expedition, Explorer, Escape, Super Duty, Fusion, Mustang, Transit Connect, F-150 and Ranger. You must have a smartphone to access FordPass. From your app store, you'll download the FordPass app and scan your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)  bar code, or enter the VIN manually. 

Then, from the app's homepage, tap Vehicle Details and then Activate Vehicle. From there, you'll start your vehicle and press "allow" when the pop-up appears on your vehicle's touch screen. Now your vehicle's control is literally in your hands 24/7! 

The finance of your vehicle can be controlled with the app as well. You can make a car payment, schedule future payments and see your account history all from FordPass. There are also many exclusive rewards offered through the App for Ford customers.
